Thanks to Golden West College for sharing this video, funded in part by CCC Maker, that demonstrates how the college guided middle school students through the design thinking process to design a better backpack.
Watch Golden West College’s “Dream BIG event video.
Golden West College (GWC) partnered with Central Orange County Career Technical Education Partnership to host a STEAM workshop for 120 participants, inspired by the movie “Dream BIG.”
The workshop empowered middle school students from three school districts in Orange County (OC) to explore, develop, and apply Design Thinking methodology to design and prototype a model backpack based on the team’s unique needs. GWC is committed to supporting students and the community with innovative programs that inspire, empower, and transform.
GWC gives special thanks to the OC Dept. of Education, OC Maker Challenge, CCC Maker Grant, and GWC’s “Applied Learning, Innovation, & Community Engagement” (ALICE) Center for supporting this project to inspire students to Dream BIG.
